I wish it was more friendly, like, "Bush is a great guy and all, but we just think we're better." Shameful.
yeah, i think it's weird that dems are about who they think can beat Bush (meaning that if they sought out a man/woman who knew the issues and represented dem ideals, they would do better than just seeking out someone they thinkcan beat w). i know that this election will be a tough one for my boy w.....but, and maybe this is just me, i don't see the logic in thinking that specifically kerry is the man who can beat him. i don't see how he's "the one".....he's wishy-washy, his wife isn't full-out "American" (and this will cause some issues, i think, to some ppl...not all, obviously, but to some.....me not liking her has nothing to do with where she's from.....i think she's just as wishy-washy as he is....switching parties just so she "can vote" for him.....uh....what?....anyway....), he just doesn't seem like a strong candidate to me.....he's got $$, or she's got money--whichever-- fo'sho....but is that enough? i wasn't impressed with him watching the debates......everyone made him out to be the best thing since JFK....and....not so much. he's got the personality of dole....and we all know how that turned out. (however, dole is an extremely hilarious man....just during those elections.....he was horribly bland...you get the point). hang on...i'l' start another thread.....

to switch parties? was that the question? whoops.

uh....thinking that hell would have to freeze over and that ideals would switch.....

I've heard that the best presidential debate would be Kerry v. Kerry!

I would switch if there was a 3rd party that was viable. Basically meaning that the US went to more of a 3 party system and that voting with the 3rd party actually resulted in a presidential candidate being elected.

That said the politics would have to be a mix...I'm liberal on things like abortion, gay rights, 1st ammendment (I have a live and let live mentality)...but conservative when it comes to money, government programs, death penalty...

While he's doing that, Bush can teach us a math class. I won't even need my contacts since it'll be fuzzy.

Don't worry I dislike him for better reasons than that.

And so y'all know, I have voted Republican, but it was just for student body president.

GeekyPenguin, I'm ashamed to say that I have actually voted Democrat, but it was only in this primary and bc one of my dad's best friends was running for re-election as sheriff. I mean come on, it doesn't really matter what party you are for sherif!!!

Ha ha, yeah, our newly elected Student Body President is the first gay president in South Carolina. My guesses are that he's a Democrat, but just an assumption.

And as for the Texan... Don't hate on the Texan accent, think Matthew McConaughey.. Now THERE's an accent.

There you go. That's how I would switch parties... if Bush actually LOOKED like Matthew McConaughey instead of just sounded like him. Mmmmm

Personal opinion only.

It is a shame that anyone would say they were sorry they voted for someone of one party or another.

I'm pretty proud of the fact that, since "Vote 18" was adopted back in about 1968, I've probably voted equally (talking about presidential races now, but it's probably true in off year elections as well) between the two parties.

There are very good people in both parties, and they should be voted on for their individual merits -- not some label.

I worry that some (perhaps a lot of) people vote for one party or another because their mom and dad were "whichever."

That's nuts.

By the way, what the hell kind of stereotyping is that?

On the other hand, we Delts thank you for the kind words about Brother McConaughey.

I'd put my money on someone gay being a Democrat. Why? Because the probability is 0.75 that they are.

Cute. Isn't that statistic true of the population as a whole?
